Micro-fabricated atomic magnetometer with hybrid vector-scalar operation, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Measurement of magnetic fields provides valuable information about charged particles and plasma interactions in the solar system, and about planetary dynamics and compositions. Magnetometers are thus important instruments to have aboard spacecraft on exploration missions. We propose a magnetometer system that is compact, low-cost, light-weight and low-power. The system is based on a miniature rubidium magnetometer and gives scalar and full vector operation with accuracy and sensitivity beyond state-of-the-art. More »
